Northern Earless Lizard (Holbrookia maculata maculata)
- The northern earless lizard is a sandy-colored lizard with two very distinctive short, dark bars near the arm pits. They have short tails, light-colored lengthwise stripes down their backs and pale speckles all over bodies. The female's body is tinted brightly with an orange color when she is carrying eggs.
- Northern earless lizards inhabit sandy prairies with sparse vegetation cover.
- They are found from South Dakota, throughout the Texas Panhandle and in parts of New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming.
